You can stream the acoustic version of “Rift” below. Marcus Bridge commented:

“Recording an acoustic EP is something that we’ve wanted to do for quite some time and felt right with the personal nature of the songs from ‘Alien‘. I wanted to strip these songs back to the bare minimum to juxtapose the soundscapes of the album, a 2D version of sorts. A song like ‘Rift‘ has a completely different energy in this context and took on new meaning with the recording in the depths of lockdown, now almost feeling like a cry of frustration and despair.”

GWAR Premiere Video For Acoustic Version Of “Fuck This Place”

GWAR have premiered a new video for their acoustic version of “Fuck This Place.“ This track is from the band’s new acoustic EP “The Disc With No Name,“ which will be released on May 28. Pustulus Maximus commented:

“I forgot to pay my electric bill so we were forced to rehearse acoustically and this is the result. The GWAR, the bad, and the ugly.”

Blóthar The Berserker added:

“This isn’t what I thought they meant by ‘unplugged.’ I haven’t been able to muster a turd for years.”

Tetrarch Share Acoustic Cover Of Mudvayne’s “Forget To Remember”

Tetrarch have shared an acoustic cover of Mudvayne‘s “Forget To Remember,“ along with an acoustic version of their song “You Never Listen.“ You can check out those tracks below:

Guitarist Diamond Rowe told Metal Hammer the following about the Mudvayne cover:

“We had an absolute blast covering ‘Forget To Remember‘. Mudvayne are a band that was pretty influential to the genre in the early 2000s. Because of their hiatus, it is so easy to forget how prominent they were during that time but when you actually stop to think about it and listen to their catalogue, there are a lot of amazing songs there.

We wanted to pick on of their songs that still had some edge and grit but that is still one of their hits, and this was the perfect one.”

As previously reported, Tetrarch‘s new album “Unstable“ will be released on April 30.
